Day 4 Round-up: David and the Forever King

Thursday, August 6th, 2009

It was another energetic night learning about David, dancing to the music, playing crazy games, and bonding with cabin groups! We learned that although David was a great king for Israel, he made some terrible mistakes, and there is a perfect king that will rule forever: Jesus!

And now for the pictures of the evening…
